TITLE: Do Your Ears Hang Low
Lyrics and Chords

[A considerably sanitized song that, in its original form, described less polite but more recognizably pendulous body parts. Tune: any one of Turkey In the Straw, the Sailor's Hornpipe, or the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers.]

Do your ears hang low
Do they wobble to and fro
Can you tie them in a knot
Can you tie them is a bow
Can you throw them o'er your shoulder
Like a continental soldier
Do your ears hang low

/ G - / / / D - / G - / / G D G - /

Do your ears stick out
Can you wiggle them about
Can you flap them up and down
As you fly around the town
Can you shut them up for sure
When you hear an awful bore
Do your ears stick out

Do your ears stand high
Do they reach up to the sky
Do they wrinkle when they're wet
Do they straighten when they're dry
Can you semaphore your neighbor
With a minimum of labor
Do your ears stand high
